The owners of SingStar on the PlayStation 3 have been complaining about the amount of songs available in the SingStore for some time now. Sony has just released a statement promising new content to arrive on January 18 and in early February.
"SingStar fans have been asking when the SingStore will be populated with more songs," the statement reads. "Our original vision, as outlined in early preview coverage of SingStar, was to have more than 350 songs available on the SingStore. We are working hard to increase the volume of content as quickly as possible."
"Eighteen new tracks will be live in the SingStore from 18th January (15 English and 3 Spanish tracks) including songs from KT Tunstall, David Bowie and Blur. This will be followed by an update the week of 4th February, including tracks from The Editors and MC Hammer, and we will be updating the SingStore with new content twice monthly thereafter. Thanks for your ongoing support."
Before SingStar was released early December in Europe, the developers promised hundreds of songs to be available in the SingStore at launch. And with more songs to come in the following months. However, Sony did not deliver and made false advertisements about the game telling you that "hundreds of songs were available for download".
SingStar on the PlayStation 3 has already been out in Europe and Australia for over a month, but the title is yet to release in North America. SingStar will be available in stores in North America in May this year. We will keep you up to date on the American release, and of course on the song downloads in the SingStore.

so i guess it's safe to say that when this title hits the states, the store should have a crap-load of downloads for us...
